Horizons of Eternity: The Theban Royal Necropoleis ANTHRO X406






Course Description

Gain an understanding of the royal cemeteries of ancient Thebes, located on the west bank of the Nile opposite the modern town of Luxor. Beginning with the ancestral tombs of the Eleventh Dynasty, trace the developments that culminated—during the New Kingdom (ca. 1550–1070 BCE)—in the architectural and artistic marvels of the Valley of the Kings and the Valley of the Queens. Study the evolution of tomb design, survey the texts and representations intended to ensure a glorious afterlife for the king and his family members, and meet the artisans responsible for the excavation and decoration of royal sepulchres. You also follow the footsteps of early explorers and conclude with a look at recent archaeological discoveries.
